I really wish I'd had my "proper" camera on me yesterday, rather than having to rely on the crappy camera in the iPhone....



In the photo, you can only just make out the Burj, With the 5D, it would have been a fab picture.

That article from "The Star" was hilarious. Why did he pick on the roads so much? Because he had little else to pick on, perhaps? In any case, everything he said about the roads in Dubai could be said of ANY country in the world. Roads are inherently dangerous. People ignore the speed limit EVERYWHERE. Pile-ups happen in every country. They happen in America all the time. We've had some SO bad that 40 people have died. So what the f**k is that dumba$$ talking about?

They're tearing down most of Satwa and appearently parts of Al Wasl as well, in order to build more highrises. I'm not an expert and other forumers know alot more about it, I guess
